Oakes Management LLC

Construction portfolio

Oakes Management, also known as OML Contracting, is a construction management company that was selected as the best custom home builder in Hawai’i. I worked with Oakes Management to redesign their portfolio and showcase their completed residences. Using 3D CSS transformations, the site has a depth effect that does not affect scrolling performance or rely on JavaScript, unlike other parallax websites.

The site loads quickly despite the large images by lazy-loading CSS. Enough code is downloaded initially to render the basic site. In the background, the remaining code loads and is activated once complete.

Other tricks are used to mask loading times. When a portfolio item is opened, the first few images shown are the same as those shown on the homepage. This provided a buffer for the remaining images to load in the background as the user views the first few in the page.
